Frequently Asked Questions
What are handtied extensions?
Hand tied weft hair extensions require no tape, glue or heat for application. These are a collection of pieces that have been pre-cut and sewn by hand to create the smallest weft-size possible. Hand tied wefts can be used to add fullness and length, all while blending seamlessly to your natural hair and texture.
Proper ways to maintain hand tied extensions.
- Hand tied extensions are recommended to be moved up every 8-10 weeks.
- Reinstallation is recommended between 6-9 weeks.
- With proper care and less excessive heat, Handtied extensions may last up to one year.
How to properly care for your hair while sleeping is just as important.
The most traditional style for sleeping with hair extensions is to secure the hair in a braid/plait. Securing the hair in a braid will prevent your hair extensions from moving around causing the bonds to tangle.
- It’s best to wash your hair 1 to 2 times a week with the products we recommendation.
- Salt water may damage your hair extensions. It’s best to avoid if possible.
- We don’t recommend washing your hair before bed. If so, we highly recommend the extensions to be 100% dry before sleeping.
- It’s recommended to brush your hair gently after washing.
Does Hand tied extensions damage your hair?
Hand tied extensions are considered damage free we always recommend hand tied extensions if you have minor breakage. Hand tied wefts are very thin wefts sewn by hand and allow for a lightweight option for your hair.
What are keratin fusion extensions?
Fusion extensions are a simple way to achieve natural looking, long hair on any hair type. Tipped with non-damaging Keratin glue, your hair is sectioned into pieces and the extension is glued to your hair. This is done with a Fusion wand that heats and melts the glue upon contact.
Keratin fusion hair extensions can last up to 3-5 months. Although fusion hair extensions cost more up front, they need less maintenance than tape in hair extensions.
We do not recommend Keratin fusion extensions for thin or damaged hair.
Extensions should be braided or put into a ponytail before sleeping.
We highly recommend not to be swimming into a salt water or chlorine water.

Maintenance of hair extensions
All extensions require some maintenance and a little TLC – Wash as you regularly would so bacteria do not build up. Always go to bed with a dry root and sleep in a low, loose braid or pony on a silk pillowcase. Brush with a natural bristle brush (or looped brush for single stranded extensions). Give your extensions a little more moisture than your existing hair as it often doesn’t receive the natural oils from our head. Lastly, make sure to come in for maintenance and move-ups regularly as 80% of breakage and damage happens after the 8-week mark.
